After a positional switch and his strongest game of the season, Wests Tigers centre Jamal Idris says he's feeling good heading in to his first Easter Monday game.

Setting up a try and running for more than 100 metres in his side's shock win over the Cowboys, Idris said the mood in the team was positive after a dominant performance.

“You’re always going to be a little happier when you get a win so hopefully we can roll from that and start building on that on to this week," he said.

“Come Monday, Parramatta aren’t going to sit there and say they won last week so they’re going to win again. It doesn’t work like that and we need to be ready for them."

After a switch of sides on the field and his first 80-minute game of the season, Idris said he felt more at home on the right edge alongside in-form winger David Nofoaluma.

“I played close to a hundred game on the right side, it was good to be back there," he said.

"I got the left defence so I could actually put that to use.

“It’s massive, it's not an easy feat to beat them up there so we'll take lots from that."

“(It’s) a building process and we still need to build; hopefully come towards the end of the year after those Origin rounds we’ve got abit of momentum going and are in the hunt for the eight."
